Camper Stolen - Camper World Parking lot

Our good friend had a camper taken from storage at a campground to the Camping World in Myrtle Beach, Dick Pond Rd. for warranty work.
The camper was pickup on last Wed. and left in the front parking lot, it was not moved into a secure area.
They had bad rain on Thursday and no one did anything until Friday. They could not find in the parking lot. Thinking that it may have been moved, they waited until Monday to ask staff if it had been moved. They looked for it, but could not find it. They waited until Monday afternoon to notify the owner.

Once good old camping world. Marcus will you fix this?

So if you see this running around, please notify Horry County law enforcement.

FWIW, Camping World has a clause in their authorization for work that states "not responsible for loss, theft, fire, or damage" If the owner signed that work authorization he also signed the disclaimer.
Sadly, I doubt you friend will ever see that RV again. I assume he has filed a claim with his insurance carrier.

I do not know about the disclaimer, I think that everything was done over the phone. Bottom line, it was not placed in a secure spot, negligence.

I wonder, why did none of the other campers out front walk off?

They probably do walk away quite often It is not in CW's best interest to make this public knowledge. Think about it. What is stopping someone from hooking up to any camper and leaving with it? Some fiver's have the landing gear control behind a locked door, but a simple flathead screwdriver will take care of that. If you look like you are supposed to be there no one is going to think any different which is most likely what happened to your friends unit. Sad state of affairs, but it is the world we live in.

even the secure storage places have that clause in their contract. when we stored coaches on our lot, we had a clause that said we were not responsible for consequential damage, vandalism, or theft. its normally covered by your insurance.
over the phone conversations are not a binding contract. with the lawyers today, even the signed contract is sometimes not binding.
if they failed to do something that was part of the signed agreement, and you can prove it, maybe you have an argument, but if it was left, by you, in an unsecure area, i would bet there is no check in the mail.
just my opinion, and we all know what thats worth.

I have to agree its unlikely the shop has any real liability...had a tailgate stolen off a new truck while in the shop and had no recourse other then filing it against vehicle insurance...seems wrong but legally thats the way it went down

As was said earlier. Will probably never be seen again. Looks like it would make a nice hunting camp back in the woods someplace.

Wouldn't count on any check from CW. I know the most local CW to me has signs all over their lot about they are not responsible and the service contract I signed for warranty work had a clause in it as well.

Last year here some folks stole 3 high end class A's worth a couple million from a Dealer north of town in the dark of night. Seems a group of thieves went in and drove out with 3 brand spanking new Class A's under their butts. Made the local news about the theft never saw any followup on the report.

And some people wonder why we get angry when they actually do catch thieves and the system does very little if anything to them. I can’t abide a thief.
